Police arrest two foreigners on the lam

Immigration police have separately arrested a Slovak and a Turk, both of whom were wanted by Interpol.

Immigration police commissioner Pol Maj Gen Panu Kerdlarbpon, said Jozef Polonec, 49, was arrested in Chon Buri's Bang Lamung district on charges of raping his 14-year-old daughter in Slovakia between 2007 and 2010. He has a court arrest warrant out on him and is on Interpol's red notice for the offence. He fled to Thailand in 2012. He would be charged of overstaying his visa first and deported later, Panu said.

Meanwhile police nabbed Turkish national Muhsin Iflazoglu, 40, who fled an arrest warrant issued by a Turkish Court and is on Interpol's red notice for the alleged extortion of about US$10,000 through his used car business.

He was earlier jailed for six years after shooting and injuring many people in his home country when a bar owner failed to repay debts of US$60,000. He fled to Thailand and was arrested while selling kebabs at Khao Sarn Road.
